The Mercat Cross Community Council, Creative Stirling, the Tolbooth and Allan’s Primary School are working together with other Mercat Cross or ‘top o’ the toun’ Stirling city community partners over the coming weeks to provide opportunities for all our local groups, volunteers and champions to be part of this community project. We are planning activities during October for our community to come together and learn about the project, share ideas, plan and support all of our neighbours and friends who live in the historical ‘top o’ the toun’ Community to create their own, very special Window Wanderland Event.
We want as many people in the community to take part as possible, to create colourful window displays for this two-day event to take place on Nov 10 and 11th. This date is significant as it will mark 100 years of Armistice Day and the end of the Great War 1914-1918. Our community has many families and residents connected with the local Regiment the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and we want to honour the historical connections to the Regiments particpation in the Great War by theming parts of the trail with artist led projects to mark this special date in history.
This Windowwanderland event is an opportunity to mark an important date for our community, however the MOST important thing is that the Mercat Cross Windowwanderland project will be open to all, and we hope the start of a new community tradition.
Everyone who takes part is free to take their own creative inspiration from wherever they wish for their individual window designs and creative displays in their homes.
Please remember this is a family event – designs must be child friendly
